Hokai-zan Dainichi-ji Temple

Temple
The Hokai-zan Dainichi-ji Temple is the 28th temple of the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage. It was founded in the 8th century when the bodhisattva Gyoki carved a statue of the Dainichi-Nyorai Buddha to serve as the main object of veneration for the Temple. The Temple was later abandoned; according to tradition, it was reestablished when Kobo Daishi visited the site and carved a statue of the Bhaisajyaguru (Medicine Buddha) out of a large Camphor tree with his fingernails. The Temple’s statue of the Konzaikai Dainichi Nyorai Buddha in a seated posture, which is said to have been carved by the bodhisattva Gyoki, has been designated as a National Important Cultural Property. The Hon-do (main hall), the renovation of which was completed in 1997, is made entirely of wood, fitted together without requiring the use of a single nail.

    自分が宿泊していたホテルから近く、町中にあるお寺ですが雰囲気はよく、気持ちよく参拝できました。無料の駐車場もあります。

    第28番札所 大日寺少し細い道を登った先、駐車所は無料ですが境内まで少し歩きます。あまり広くはありませんがなかなか見応えもあります。ご本尊は国の重要文化財とのことです。境内を背にしてみる山々の景色はとても美しいかったです。
